Discussion on: How I Take Notes

This is neat! I always love to read about how people learn and different approaches.

I've found that whenever I'm learning something new, it helps me to take notes as if I'm going to have to turn around and give a lecture to someone else on the subject right after I'm done. It helps me to lock onto the key points, important hierarchies and structures, and things that are difficult for me to learn. It also helps me keep track of the things that I learned that really helped the material click for me. It also combats the "I understand this, I don't need notes" that turns into "I only remember the general overview".

Thanks for the great post!
